(Six) "Incredible pictures: the moment lightning shared the sky with a rainbow"
By BRENDAN MONTAGUE, Daily Mail, 13th July 2006
When a rainbow formed in the sky people stopped and stared at the natural wonder.
But then lightning sparked across the evening panorama as two of nature's most spectacular phenomenon created an unusual alliance.
The clash of weather was seen above the affluent city of Fort Smith, in the Southern state Arkansas.
There has been so much happen today in the middle east that we must be getting close!
How about av 9,10 (Aug. 3,4, 2006)? or Sept. 23, as you suggested? That will be the Feast of Trumpets.
Note: See Heb. 12:23 (CJB) quoted below. Instead of "GENERAL ASSEMBLY", as in the KJV, it says,"FESTIVE ASSEMBLY." That sounds like the Feast of Trumpets for the 2nd Rapture. Do you suppose the 1st Rapture would also be on the Feast of Trumpets? The trump of God sounds at both Raptures (I Thess. 4:16 and I Cor. 15:51).

Israel is Attacked Again by Missiles and Other Weapons With the Backing of Arab and Islamic Countries-The G-d of Israel and His Faithful Israeli Soldiers will Win this Battle as Well
Israel is Now in the Beginning of the End-Time Gog and Magog War - The Rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem and the Coming of the Mashiach ben Davis is Behind the Door
As these words are being written Israel is being attacked by two evil terrorist organizations. Israel is being attacked from Gaza in the southwest by the Hamas terrorist organization and from Lebanon in the north by the Hezbollah terrorist organization. These two evil terror organizations are fighting against Israel with the backing of Iran and Syria especially and other nations which arm them with missiles and other kinds of weapons. Missiles are shot from both sides on Israeli towns and cities. Israel is again paying a price of blood for protecting the holy land of the G-d and the people of Isreal and the end-time godly event that is taking place in Israel. This is another war against Israel with one clear goal: To destroy Israel and to push the Israeli nation into the Mediterranean. These evil terrorist organizations have the backing of the Arab and Islamic countries and other countries in the world. Together they prepare even much more heavy weapons including nuclear bombs and chemical missiles directed at Israel. They know and understand that Israel is the only obstacle before their goal to occupy all the world especially the western world and to make it an Islamic world. Israel is now again fighting against so many enemies and their terror agents of Hamas and Hezbollah. It is not only a battle for survival and protecting our fathers and mother, sisters and brothers against an inhumane cruel enemy that their religion is calling for murder, hatred and destruction. This is a battle for protecting the major godly event which is taking place in Israel now: The rebuilding of the Kingdom of G–d, His values and morals in the holy land that G–d gave to His chosen people Israel in an eternal covenant. This is a major godly event which will be an opening for the redemption of all mankind based on G-d's values and morals at a time when it is so needed. Israel will again win this battle. The small Israel will overcome this difficult time. As it was in the biblical times the G–d of Israel, the Creator of the Universe, is fighting together with the Israeli soldiers against the messengers of the devil. These evil powers want to destroy what G–d is doing with Israel at these critical times and to eliminate not only Israel but the great hope for all the world for a better mankind. They have illusions that they can win the battle against G–d and His people Israel. They never learned from their own experience and experience of other evil powers throughout the history of Israel that believed that they can destroy the G–d and the people of Israel. They were all defeated by the G–d of Israel and His Israeli soldiers and have disappeared completely under the judgement of G–d from the stage of history. The same will be their destiny now as G–d promised to His people Israel through her great prophets. They have no chance. Who can challenge the G–d of Israel and the Universe and His Israeli soldiers who swore to dedicate and give their lives for their beloved G–d, His Word that He gave them in the Torah and the holy wonderful land that He gave them forever. G–d promised Israel that His eyes, His heart and His attention will be day and night on His people Israel and their Promised Land to protect and save them from any enemy that will come to destroy His beloved wife Israel. This is not the first war against Israel and not, as we see, the last of them. This is another stage in the end-time war against Israel that started in 1948 and it is coming closer and closer to its climax. Israel together with the G–d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is ready to face this actual war and this that is going to come, the end-time war which as G-d called it through His prophet Ezekiel "the Gog and Magog War" (please read Ezekiel 38 & 39, Zechariah 12 & 14, and Joel 4). The victory belongs to the G–d of Israel and the Universe who is determined to complete His major end-time event which is called Israel and to bring to pass the eternal cause and mission that He gave to His chosen people Israel: To be a holy nation, a kingdom of priests, a treasure and a light to all the nations.
Israel is now experiencing one of the most critical stages in the process of Redemption, the exciting process that the G-d of Israel is leading in the last century, especially since the foundation of the State of Israel in 1948. This is, as I said above, another stage in the beginning of the end-time war, the Gog and Magog War, against Israel. As G-d promised this end-time war against Israel will be the last stage before the climax of this process and the most exciting part of it: The building of the end-time Temple of G-d on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to be a house of prayer, worship and love for Israel and all mankind and the coming of the end-time Messenger of G-d, Machiach ben David. This will open the time of redemption for all mankind. All the friends and the lovers of the G-d of Israel and His people Israel which are now facing another evil war from evil enemies are called to stand with and encourage her at this critical moment, all those wonderful brothers and sisters all over the world are called to stand with, help and encourage the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement that fulfills a major part in this campaign and even more so in the near future, and G-d will bless those who bless Israel as He promised.
Chairman, Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement
Dear Mr. Salomon;
I believe that the time for rebuilding the Temple is quickly approaching. You may actually get your wish to be allowed to lay the cornerstone on the Temple mount sooner than you think possible. Respectfully, if you are allowed to lay the cornerstone on the Temple mount, where on the mount do you intend to put it?
Your being allowed to place it on the mount might depend on your picking the right spot for it. Please give some consideration to this thought. What if waiting for the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque to be destroyed by an earthquake first is not the correct thing to do.
On your web site, you "wrote about a Jewish tradition that, in the time of the redemption of Israel, G-d would cause an earthquake to destroy the foreign mosques on the Temple Mount and open the way for the building of the endtime Temple. This time has already come. We are now living in the endtimes, the time of the redemption of the people of Israel" (http://www.templemountfaithful.org/News/20040216.htm).
You also wrote that "The collapse of walls on the Temple Mount, and all the other signs that were mentioned...are very clear signs that the foreign pagan presence on the Temple Mount is about to be removed. G-d has started to prepare His holy hill for Israel to purify it and to build the Temple. The Hand of G-d continues to appear again and again in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, as well as over all the land of Israel, calling the Israeli Government to do what He expects of them to do: to purify the Temple Mount and immediately rebuild the house of G-d. This will open the Eastern Gate for the coming of Mashiach ben David" (http://www.templemountfaithful.org/News/20040204.htm).
That will come true before the Millennial Temple is built, but surely there will be a Temple built before that one. It would be on the Temple mount during the 70th week of Daniel.
Dan. 9:25-27 (CJB) says, "Seventy weeks (of years) have been decreed for your people (Israelites) and for your holy city (Jerusalem) for putting an end to the transgression, for making an end of sin, for forgiving iniquity, for bringing in everlasting justice, for setting the seal on vision and prophet, and for anointing the Especially Holy Place (the Temple's Holy of Holies). Know, therefore, and discern that seven weeks [of years] (i.e., 49 years) will elapse between the issuing of the decree (of Cyrus, Isa. 44:28) to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim (in 454 BCE) until an anointed prince comes. It will remain built for sixty-two weeks [of years] (i.e., 434 years; 49 + 434 = 483 years), with open spaces and moats; but these will be troubled times. Then, after the sixty-two weeks (483 - 454 BCE + 1 because no zero year = 30 CE), Mashiach will be cut off (karath, killed) and have nothing. The people (Romans) of a prince (the False Prophet) yet to come (i.e., during the 70th week of Daniel) will destroy the city and the sanctuary (the Romans burned Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 CE). but his (the False Prophet to come's) end will come with a flood, and desolations are decreed until the war (i.e., of Armageddon) is over. He (the False Prophet of the end times) will make a strong covenant (i.e., strengthen the peace treaty) with leaders (probably including the UN) for one week [of years, 7 years]. For half of the week (i.e., 3.5 years) he will put a stop to the sacrifice and the grain offering (at the rebuilt Temple during the 70th week of Daniel, the last 7 years of this Age). On the wing of detestable things the desolator will come (i.e., to full power in the middle of the 70th week) and continue until the already decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator" (i.e., near the end of the 70th week).
In the middle of the 70th week, the desolator (False Prophet) will place "the abomination that causes devastation" (Mattityahu 24:15), an idol, at the Temple that has been rebuilt during the first 3.5 years of the 70th week of Daniel.
The Revelation of Yeshua the Messiah to Yochanan 11:1,2 says that Yochanan "was given a measuring rod like a stick and told, 'Get up, and MEASURE THE TEMPLE OF GOD and the altar, and count how many people are worshipping there! But the court outside the Temple, leave that out; don't measure it; because it has been given to the Goyim, and they will trample over the holy city for 42 months.
I think this Temple will be built between the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque. The outer court will not be built at this time. That area will still be used by the Muslims.
I feel certain that the Temple will not be built over the rock that is now under the Dome of the Rock.
First, the rock is too large to fit into the Temple. According to Josephus (Wars, V, 5) the Holy of Holies in Herod's Temple measured 10 m x 10 m, whereas the Rock within the Dome of the Rock is 17.7 m x 13.5 m.
Second, the floor of the Holy of Holies and the Holy Place are to be wood covered with gold as they were in Solomon's Temple. I Kings 6:30 says, "He overlaid the floor of the house with gold, both inside the sanctuary and outside it."
I agree with you that "The voice of G–d is being very clearly heard in this critical and exciting times. We are living very close to the climax of these times. The historical battle of The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement to rebuild the Third Temple cannot be stopped."
If you do not yet understand where the Temple belongs, God's two witnesses, Moses and Elijah, will show you when they arrive at the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel.
Malakhi 3:4,5 says, "Remember the Torah of Moshe (Moses) my servant, which I enjoined on him at Horev, laws and rulings for all Israel. "Look, I will send to you Eliyahu (Elijah) the prophet BEFORE the coming of the great and terrible Day of Adonai" (Day of the Lord).
The Day of the Lord is the day of destruction. Yoel 1:15 says, "Oh no! The Day! The Day of Adonai (the Lord) is upon us! As DESTRUCTION FROM SHADDAI IT IS COMING!" It is the day that Israel is being attacked. Of that day, Ezekiel 38:17-23 says, "I spoke of you long ago through my servants the prophets of Israel. Back then, they prophesied for many years that I would have you invade them. When that day comes, when Gog invades the land of Israel, says Adonai ELOHIM, my furious ANGER will boil up. In my jealousy, in my heated FURY I speak: when that day comes there will be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, so that the fish in the sea (the Mediterranean), the birds in the air, the wild beasts, all the reptiles creeping on the ground and every human being there in the land will tremble before me. Mountains will fall, cliffs crumble and every wall crash to the ground. I will summon a sword against him throughout all my mountains, says Adonai ELOHIM, every man will wield his sword against his brother. I will judge him with plague and with blood. I will cause torrential rain to fall on him, his troups and the many peoples with him, along with huge hailstones, fire and sulfur. I will show my greatness and holiness, making myself KNOWN IN THE SIGHT OF MANY NATIONS; then they will know that I am ADONAI" (the LORD).
Yoel 2:10,11 says, "At their advance the earth quakes, and the sky shakes, the sun and moon turn black, and the stars stop shining. ADONAI (the Lord) shouts orders to his forces--his army is immense, mighty, and it does what he says. For great is the Day of ADONAI, fearsome, terrifying! Who can endure it?
That will be the day that the asteroid as big as a mountain will strike the Mediterranean Sea. Revelation 8:8 says, "The second angel sounded his shofar, and what looked like an enormous blazing mountain was hurled into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed."
Yechezkiel 39:11-13 says, "When that day comes, I will give Gog a place there in Israel for graves, the Travelers' Valley, east of the sea; and it will block the travelers' passage. There they will bury Gog and all his horde, and they will rename it the Valley of Hamon-Gog [horde of Gog]. It will take the house of Israel SEVEN MONTHS TO BURY THEM, IN ORDER TO CLEANSE THE LAND. yes, all the people of the land will be burying them; they will become famous for it. It will be a day for me to be glorified,' says Adonai ELOHIM."
Why will they cleanse the land of Israel when around the rest of the world, the bodies will not be buried? The reason is that after SEVEN MONTHS (Tishri, Cheshvan, Kislev, Teveth, Shevat, Adar and Adar II), i.e., on the following Nisan 1, the Mashiach ben David will come to establish his reign in Israel. Then the Temple Ezekiel described will be built. The Law will finally go forth from Jerusalem. The Israelites will inherit the Earth. King David will return.
Of the kingdom of Mashiach ben David, there will be no end, but the first 1000 years are set apart from the rest. The Great White Throne Judgment will take place at the end of the 1000 years. At that point, what is called eternity future will begin.
To me, the 7 months mean that Mashiach ben David will return on Nisan 1, the first day of the Regnal Year, in a Leap Year. It could be 5774. If so, the previous Tishri 1 would be the great and terrible Day of the Lord when the alarm is blown on the trumpets. It is then that the Lord will fight for Israel.
The 70th week of Daniel is roughly 7 years. The last 3.5 years, called the Great Tribulation will be shortened or no flesh would be saved (Mt. 24:21,22), but seven years before Tishri 1, 5774 is Tishri 1, 5767 (September 23, 2006). Think about how close we must be to the time when the Temple will be built. The last generation started with the Six-Day War in 1967.
In Mattityahu 24:32-34, Mashiach ben David said, "Now let the fig tree (i.e., Israel, Yoel 1:6,7) teach you its lesson: when its branches (scions grafted in, i.e., modern Israel) begin to sprout (grow) and leaves appear, you know that summer is appoaching (Israel put forth leaves in the Six-Day War, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights, Sinai and West Bank; the war started June 5, summer began June 21). In the same way, when you see all these things, you are to KNOW THAT THE TIME IS NEAR, right at the door. Yes! I tell you that this people (born in 1967) will certainly not pass away before all these things happen."
What things? the things he mentioned just before giving the Fig Tree Parable. Mattityahu 24:29-31 says, "But immediately following the trouble of those times, the sun will grow dark, the moon will stop shining. the stars (asteroids of Rev. 8:8,10) will fall from the sky, and the powers in heaven will be shaken. Then the SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN (Mashiach ben David) will appear in the SKY, all the tribes of the Land will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN coming on the clouds of heaven with tremendous power and glory. He will send out his angels with a GREAT SHOFAR; and they will gather together his chosen people from the four winds, FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER."
In Mark 13:23-27, Mashiach ben David said, But you, watch out! I have told you EVERYTHING IN ADVANCE! In those days, after that trouble, the sun will grow dark, the moon will stop shining, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers in heaven will be shaken. Then they will see the SON OF MAN coming in clouds with tremendous power and glory. He will send out his angels and gather together his chosen people from the four winds, from the ends of the EARTH to the ends of HEAVEN."
I hope to meet you in Heaven on that day. There will be a festive assembly, so it may be on the Feast of Trumpets.
Hebrews 12:22-26 (CJB) says of that day, "you have come to Mount Tziyon, that is, the city of the living God, heavenly Yerushalayim; to myriads of angels in FESTIVE ASSEMBLY; to a community of the firstborn whose names have been recorded in heaven; to a Judge who is God of everyone; to spirits of righteous people who have been brought to the goal; to the mediator of a new covenant, Yeshua; and to the sprinkled blood that speaks better things than that of Hevel. SEE THAT YOU DON'T REJECT THE ONE SPEAKING! For if those did not escape who rejected him when he gave divine warning on earth (at Mt. Sinai), think how much less we will escape if we turn away from him when he warns from heaven. Even then (i.e., at Mt. Sinai), his voice shook the earth; but now, he has made this promise: 'One more time I will shake not only the earth, but heaven too.'" Shalom
Incoming e-mail, Re: The Excellent Work You Have Given the Reader
I am deeply struck by the excellent work you have given the reader in pointing out the location of the Temple. It makes such perfect sense that God would profoundly and simply mark the location with the seeming face of Jesus and His Bride.
It is also not surprising that the battle to publish this information would be intense with computer problems and hours of effort scanning. I pray for you to be protected by the power of His blood in all of the aspects of your health, Ed's health and your encouragement as the final days pass. It will be such joy to thank you in person and see the wondrous rewards given you at the Bema Bench.
Thank you for your faithfulness and courage in the face of these difficult days. I am enclosing the product of an early morning time with the Lord in which I was seeking His peace beyond the difficult circumstances overwhelming me. You may use it in any way you would like.
God bless you richly and strengthen you in your body, spirit and mind. Loving you
Elements of Lasting Peace
Meditating on the depth of Jesus’ s, the Father’s and the Holy Spirit’s love for me.
Letting go of toxic emotions, understanding that I am also capable of equally insensitive choices that impact
others as I have been seemingly impacted
Focusing on God’s ability to make a way where there seems to be no way
Choosing solitude with God, listening to Him
Worshipping the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for their beauty, power, holiness
Thanking the Lord for all of times that He has intervened, often at the midnight hour
Being wise about my physical limitations, planning a rest day after a heavier day, verbalizing boundaries
when others cannot understand my limitations
Keeping the Sabbath as a day of focus on hearing from God and resting
List the revealed pointers of His imminent coming
Remembering that other believers are also "the apple of His eye".
Making positive statements in negative circumstances
Speaking peace into situations
Resting in His arms, acknowledging my helpless and hopeless estate apart from His intervening care
Recalling His promise that He will deliver until the day He arrives!
Lifting my eyes from circumstances to the joy of eternity: the pleasure of His touch, the first love
of fully being understood and understanding the beloved; the intimacy of never being
separated from Him; the joy of knowing that He knows better than I what will please me eternally.
Accepting what I cannot change today as having passed through my loving Father’s hand as character building and for my ultimate good.
Living today alone; staying in the present in His love and grace
Singing, letting music fill the air early in the morning
Asking Him to speak to me as I study and read His Word
Making my relaxation reading a journey with Him, not theology.
Write/journal/do creative writing
Balance the day…no work after 8 pm
Go to sleep with deep breathing and simple praise
Love His appearing !
- Judy Morford
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Things keep going wrong. This is about the 4th time I have tried to answer this. I had it ready to go this last time, then suddenly, my computer screen went black and the computer restarted. I lost it again.
Ed had croup last night--couldn't get his breath. The Lord got me in there a few minutes before that. I have to get him to steam, put a towel over his head to get him to breathe it for awhile, then run the vaporizer the rest of the night. Today, I have a sore throat. We're fighting a cold bug.
I feel compelled to study the Temple. It is so symbolic. Agape
